    Shubes,

    I just recently purchased a p205-s6237 laptop and thanks to all the input on this thread, I was able to successfully install XP without a hitch.

    I was wondering if you were able to figure out the whole F6 and F7 brightness control thing? I would really like to have that functionality back.

    On another note, does anyone know how to change the resolution of the touchpad after loading XP?

    ok folks i found out what the problem was for the touchpad not working on my p205 running on XP:: i tweaked the BIOS setup back to DEFAULT just by pressing the F9 key and saving the changes made and after that i done a reinstall of the driver provided in the disk 1 of the toshiba recovery cd, plus i installed the on/off touchpad utility you can download from the toshiba website and voila, everything works now.
    i can only assume that the IRQs were probably moved during my first XP install (?) cause i never touched the machine's setup before and the touchpad worked fine under vista
    i decided to post this in case anybody has encontered the same annoying problem.

    good luck to everyone!!!!!!!!

    i guess that's all from me for now.. .. .. ;)
    nice one -ziGG

    Unfortunately, no. I never could get the function keys to work correctly. I found a small, inexpensive program called Magic Hotkey that works wonderfully, if not better. I can control not only the brightness with my function keys, but the contrast AND the gamma settings as well.

    Yeah, it's annoying to have to install an external app to make the function keys work, but I sure like having XP.

    What is the original software for the webcam on the P205-S6267? I just recieved the computer and it had already been converted to XP Pro everthing seem to be working but there is no program for the Webcam or the Lableflash.
    I would like to be able to use the webcam but i have no idea where to start.

    thanks, Tina
